The Southern California College Access Network is an alliance of over 50 nonprofit organizations working to increase the number of low-income students who access and complete a postsecondary education. Together, our members provide direct services to more than 75,000 students and families in the region with the goal of ensuring low-income students are prepared academically, financially and socially for success in college and beyond.
What We Believe
· College is a necessity: Postsecondary education is a prerequisite to success in a knowledge-based economy. Everyone must pursue and complete a postsecondary credential or degree beyond high school.
· College is for everyone: The postsecondary education attainment rates among low-income students are significantly lower than those of other students. SoCal CAN is committed to closing these gaps.
· College is a public good: Postsecondary educational opportunity and attainment are critical to a just and equitable society, strong economy, and healthy communities.
